Shortly after results for the Iowa caucus came in, MySpace released the winners of its first-ever presidential primary.

Senator Barack Obama, who took the Iowa caucus, ran off with 46 percent of the online Democratic vote.

Mike Huckabee, who took Iowa amongst Republican candidates, did not curry mirrored favor on MySpace. He lost to Ron Paul, dubbed an elections long shot by Adweek.

But Paul enjoys a strong online following. One day in November, he raised $4 million online for his campaign.

MySpace reports that 153,226 members voted in the primary. The average age of participants was 29 years of age, with the majority intending to vote in the actual election.
